pSivida Corp. (NASDAQ:PSDV, ASX:PVA), a leader in developing sustained release, drug delivery products for treatment of back-of-the-eye diseases, today announced that it will host a live webcast and conference call Monday, November 14, 2011, at 9:00 am ET to discuss the receipt by its licensee Alimera Sciences, Inc. of a complete response letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in response to the New Drug Application for ILUVIEN® for the treatment of diabetic macular edema associated with diabetic retinopathy announced earlier today.
“In addition to discussing the CRL, we will also discuss our product pipeline outside of ILUVIEN, including our other two clinical stage product candidates: one we are independently developing to treat uveitis affecting the posterior segment of the eye using the same insert as ILUVIEN and the other we are developing in collaboration with Pfizer to treat glaucoma and ocular hypertension. We also continue to advance our BioSilicon research and development,” said Dr. Paul Ashton, Ph.D., President and CEO of pSivida. “Although we will not be due the $25 million milestone payment for FDA approval of ILUVIEN, we continue to believe that our $21.3 million of cash resources at September 30, 2011 is sufficient to support our current and planned operations into at least calendar year 2013.”
